Tevar Hindi Movie Review

Rating:2/5 Review By:  Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
Aside from a few striking scenes, like one in which Pintu throws Radhika off a building when Gajinder and his goons have cornered them, Sharma doesn't do anything particularly new or original with this decidedly 80s formulaic film. The only thing worse than the fact that Tevar is so long is that you've seen all of this many times before. I'm going with a generous two out of five. I came away with a throbbing headache.

Tevar -- yet another of those mindless South remakes we have been indulging in so faithfully ever since Aamir Khan showed us the way in Ghajini -- is a tiring slog, devoid of personality, riding unfairly on the shoulders of a young lad. This simply-plotted film sloppily carries on and on, and while some action sequences have an intriguingly gritty texture -- at one point a goon slams Kapoor in the chest with a giant old-school istri -- Tevar emerges an overdone, underwhelming film with zero charm.

Arjun Kapoor is always likeable on the screen, but the rugged persona that he assumes here - a combo, in the character's own words, of Rambo, Terminator and Salman Khan - is not up his street. Tevar is somewhat tolerable only as long as Bajpayee is on the screen, or when Raj Babbar, as the hero's police officer-father, and Subrat Dutta, as the villain's principal henchman, are allowed to do their bit. The film needed much more than that in order to pass muster.

Amit Sharma's Tevar, a remake of the Telugu hit Okkadu (2003), is over-a-decade-old wine served on a larger canvas.the film should've been reduced by a good 20 minutes - it doesn't run quite as fast as Arjun does on screen. Amit makes a smooth progression from 30-second commercials to a 159-minute-long film. His penchant for colours, the right use of the Taj Mahal (as a monument of love), his finesse in presenting the real locations indicate his adroitness in filmmaking.

A wholesome entertainer with power-packed drama, high-octane action and heartfelt romance. Arjun Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Manoj Bajpayee and Raj Babbar are in top form. Amit Sharma is a director to watch out for. Tevar wins you over completely. Has all the ingredients to strike a chord with moviegoers. 2015 should start with a bang!

Right from its opening frames, ‘Tevar’ makes you a couple of promises : that it will be violent, vicious and crude; and that it will do nothing new. On both counts, that is exactly what it delivers. Same old biff bang thud, covered by blood, bones and mud. Arjun Kapoor does a backslide to his ‘Gunday-Ishaqzaade’ mode. He does the action bits well enough, but his voice is still reedy. It lacks roar.

'Tevar' starts with a handicap. This remake of a 2003 Telugu film, 'Okkudu', has a jaded, well-worn story that's been repeated several times over. But, ironically, they have not only failed to do so, but also managed to take it further back a decade or two, uncomfortably reminding us of the terrible '80s phase of Bollywood. Watch it if you miss those old '80s masala no-brainers, or if you are an Arjun Kapoor fan.

On the whole, TEVAR is a stylised masala entertainer that'll give you enough reasons to have a good time in the cinema hall. Yes, the story doesn't have anything new to offer, but the wonderful performances, energetic music score, stupendous action and the fact that it's a clean entertainer makes it a fun watch. TEVAR is worth your time. Go for it.

Arjun is still not actor enough to pull off what Salman Khan does. Sadly the year starts with a disappointing film. The good thing however is that the quality of films can only go up from here.Skip it!

  1. thzz year starts with a worst movie..

  2. Visit for full review

  3. Now ths bloody Arjun Kapoor has also started being in the same pipeline like sallu in remaking Superstar Mahesh Babu's film..

  4. TEVAR:
    Stinking old, rotten & formulaic! ‘Manoj-Arjun’ does the repair! [2/5]

    Remaking an 11-year old Telugu super hit doesn’t really sound a bad idea at first, as masala entertainers are the safest option in Bollywood to hit the jackpot of the 100 Cr club. First timers Sanjay Kapoor [being the producer] & Amit Ravindernath Sharma [the admaker takes a leap by directing a full-fledged feature film] try the same with showing their jam-packed confidence in family-boy Arjun Kapoor and the adeptly assured actor-performer Manoj Bajpayee in a negative role. Still, TEVAR suffers the stinks of being old, rotten and formulaic, mostly and mainly at the plot part.

    In the murderous land of Northern Uttar Pradesh; where power rules and male-chauvinism takes hold of the dice in the game, you don’t really meet a Pintu Shukla [Arjun Kapoor] very often. Though he is a Salman Khan fan and wears same attitude as well and effortless as his trademark aviator shades, he can also be seen harassing an eve-teaser for giving him back what he was doing to a teenage girl, moments ago. He also cares for the girl’s presence while mouthing not-so-smooth verbal expressions. Now, that’s rare. Rare for a Bollywood movie which also could have Salman in the place! I wished it to have more of such attitude!

    The drama soars high when a bigheaded, haughty and powerful scandalous brother [Manoj Bajpayee] of an influential politician starts feeling for a local girl doing her obvious best like dancing and attending drama classes. Who else but Sonakshi in real, and in reel? Pintu accidently crosses the path, beats the villain, meets the girl and takes it as a mission to save the girl from the lecherous. Don’t allow me to judge your intelligence about what comes next and in the finale! And it all happens with a plentiful of high-octane action and songs of every kind, alternatively and frequently.

    The part where Amit Ravindernath Sharma scores big is the treatment, authenticity of the locations, characters that can easily charm the audience in mass and drama that never actually lacks the punch. He is confident for sure but it hurts to see such talent trembling all over a plot which could have been best in the year of 2005 but never a promising in 2015. Arjun Kapoor’s energy never runs out of charge. He CAN be as charismatic as Salman. He CAN beat the goons too, at beats. He CAN also lip smoothly the most absurdly written dialogues using slangs of male-organs. Only if the script had provided him more space and viewers some kind of novelty to stick around, it would have been a pleasant surprise!

    Though not in full form; Manoj Bajpayee does his part well in the most theatrical manner. He successfully uses his corrupt, sinning and wicked eyes for the most. Don’t expect a GANGS OF WASSEYPUR from him but he’s better than the repetitive Prakash Raj any day. Sonakshi does what she’s been doing for ages now, and I really want to write more about her abilities as an actor but then, there is hardly anything new. Raj Babbar, Dipti Naval & Rajesh Sharma don’t disappoint.

    With a tiring duration of 2 hour 39 minutes, age-old plot and mindlessly put songs, Amit Ravindernath Sharma’s TEVAR is an average action-entertainer saved hugely by Arjun Kapoor’s earnest & energetic performance and Manoj Bajpayee’s engagingly villainous character. Watch it if you are a fan of both, though it is not their best at all! [2/5]

  5. Haha I hope you would be giving it 1/5....U r giving high rating to every movies nwadays....

    1. 2 star is not a high rating dude
      Nd if manoj is there than one star automaticaly get added...nly from his presence

    2. 2 star is Nt high Bt look at his rating in Doom 3,Talaash..How come he gave 3 stars to those dumb movies and the most saddest part is PK which he rated 5/5...Hahaha....

    3. true, pk , definitely much lower than OMG! but he gave 5/5, and also wrote so good (mind you, he found flaws in eith movie) about dhoom-3. HOW?WHY?
      Even Amir Khan was my favourite actor. His perfectionist image was untill, TZP & 3 idiots. But Talash, dhoom-3, can u not find any flaws in these movies man. Anyways live with it. I like Gaurav's writing style more than the rating he time a AMir's movie releases, i wont follow your review (although read, as I love his writing skills) are biased for Amir Khan's even Gaurav is also human..:-)

    4. Dude....what was wrong with Talash !!!! it was much better than Doom 3 and PK.

  6. I feel Tevar is formulaic, average entertainer that has been laden with all the Masala elements required to make a typical Bollywood commercial potboiler aimed mainly at single screen audience. If you have a flair for stylish masala films where action does more talking than words, than this is the movie for you else you can skip this one. For my detailed review, please visit...........

  7. Starting with 2015, Bollywood promises to be bigger and better this year. But can we actually expect it to deliver good films this year? Can we actually hope for films which would be worth our money? With Boney Kapoor’s ‘Tevar’ being the first release of the year, I clearly see no sign of a ‘better bollywood’.

    Pintoo Shukla (Arjun Kapoor), the protagonist, is a Kabaddi player from Agra who also uses his so called free time to roam around with his gang of friends. Satyapal (Raj Babbar), father of Pintoo, is an IPS officer sick of his son’s mischiefs. The female lead, Radhika (Sonakshi Sinha) stays in Mathura with her parents and a brother who is a TV journalist. Gajendra Singh (Manoj Bajpayee), brother of popular politician Mahendra Singh (Rajesh Sharma), is a local goon of Mathura who falls for Radhika. Gajendra tries his best to win over the heart of Radhika, but fails. Now, I guess it is simple enough to predict the story.

    Villain forcefully tries to marry the heroine, hero rescues her, a game of mouse and cat, and then the hero wins.

    Yes, Tevar is yet another Bollywood drama with nothing new to offer. It is the same old story served to you with some extra cheese on the top. Plus, it is extra-long, a two hour and thirty minute film with too many useless songs to bear. I think the film makers completely forgot to edit the film. What a shame!

    If Arjun Kapoor has to stay in the business, he better do meaningful films, like his counterpart Ranveer Singh, now. I hope Sonakshi Sinha would someday utilize her acting skills (only if she has them). Manoj Bajpayee, to a relief, is excellent. Raj Babbar is impressive. Rajesh Sharma is decent.

    If this is the start of 2015, I seriously hope that Bollywood only raises its standard from here. Tevar is strictly avoidable.

    Rating- 1.5/5
